Hey Martin, Pretty cool! Nice clean track.

My only comment is the vocal reverb, But it does suit the the track. reminds me of Bob Clearmountain's Roxy Music mixes.

Scroll down to Stairwell to heaven, Quite interesting.

Good stuff.

Hi Martin,

Everything sounded very clean and well recorded.
I'm with Lex in that i probably would have liked to hear this with a little less reverb on the vocal. Although, i think it was a good choice of reverb type.
One thing that i've been trying to work on in my mixes is dynamics within the song. Maybe something to consider here is, to my ears, the verses and chorus weren't different enough. Mainly level-wise but also i notice stereo field didn't alter to much through the song.
I'm curious to know how you panned your instruments as alot of time it felt like the mix was mainly in the centre, but this is also a taste thing.
Overall, i like the sounds you got, particularly the drums. Nice vocal performance too.

Thanks for your feedback.
Youre right on the vocals a little les reverb
I pan my guitar's
The rest off instruments i set in the middle
The only think i do not understand is the stereo field
Is it all stereo or sound a little more mono?
Thanks Lex an dappledrawing for your comments

I still try :0) and practice my stuff in recording

Martin

Hi Martin it´s a really clean mix maybe all the guys just say but I think it´s too much reberv on vocals and the Pannig it´s also weird to me, but sounds great so Congratulations

Hi Martin, google LCR panning and read a bit about it. I generally stick to LCR for my mixes and would only partially pan things like hihats, toms etc. This approach generally helps widen your mixes, but one thing to look out for is balancing the left and right so there isnt too much on one side. There are some consistent rules about what should go in the centre like kick,bass, lead vocal, snare. But try it on one of your mixes and see what you think.

Sounds almost Radio Ready, to me! I have to register a different opinion, though - I like the reverb on the Vox  8)

Hello there,

The mix is pretty decent it's just that the vocals are way too loud
above the whole mix and they've got too much delay/verb.

I'd lower the volume/EQ them first, remove some effects and
I feel like they will blend in the mix better :)

The kick is too heavy in the sub freqs
The pick sound on the guitar is to loud
Too much mids in the vocal reverb
Snare should be wider
The organ is to loud, and has an annoying effect
Bass is way too weak

First impressions only! I may be wrong

Cheers
Jan O
